Re: bronze 91 z28 wheels

For a flat black car that's CLEAN, they look decent on it. I wish the centercap portion wasnt chrome, though.

Re: bronze 91 z28 wheels

Ive always liked bronze wheels on flat black or red cars. Those particular wheels look good on 91-92 cars just because they seem to "fit" with the ground fx and everything and Im kind of a stickler for a stock appearance. To me IROCs dont look quiiiiiite right on the 91-92 cars just because.

But those wheels in bronze.... I like it in a lot of ways, but the centercap thng is a problem. I would try black and see how it looks.

BTW classic bronze/gold wheels:



It also reminds me of this with the flat black...



Thats the Ferrari F300 from 1998, and I've always thought it looked amazingly good, so I've had an appreciation for this new flat black trend. I think it works pretty well as long as the car is clean enough it doesnt look like primer.

Another awesome example of the bronze/flat black look:



I dont think many of the guys here can really appreciate the look you're going for because it's not very common with domestics, but I wanted to show the guys some good examples of it.

Re: bronze 91 z28 wheels

i agree i love the look of it and im surprized that someone else actually likes it and yea i havent seen many american cars flat black that doesnt look like someone took a rattle can to in their yard as for the center cap i will redo the extra one tonight and take pics in the morning and get your opinion on the black do ya think i should go gloss or flat to match the car?

Re: bronze 91 z28 wheels

I like the way it looks but I think you should get badges to match as it would add to the look so good

Re: bronze 91 z28 wheels

I think they look great. It's a good color combination and it's something that is rarely seen here on TGO.

Correct.

I got it from Amazon but it shows unavailable now. I'm sure you can get them other places. Cost about $150.

The center is painted, they come chrome.
